Breaking Beauty Podcast

Jun 12, 2019

In today’s episode, Jill comes clean with a dirty little beauty secret: she’s v. lazy when it comes to cleaning her makeup brushes! Anyone relate? We get a lesson in makeup brushes 101 with celebrity makeup artist, Pati Dubroff. (She was in town with Winners/Marshalls Canada, because serious heads up— they have prestige cosmetics at a discount, too.) She should know, having worked with Madonna in the 90s, held court as Dior’s resident makeup ambassador for many years, and these days, she regularly glows up the faces of Margot Robbie and Priyanka Chopra Jonas.


We also get Pati’s take on the top makeup brushes that should be in everybody’s makeup kit, and we get the #glowdown on synthetic versus natural bristles. Finally, you’ll hear all the deets on Pati’s tricks for brush care and whether those sanitizing sprays are a good idea or not. You’re not going to want to miss the moment where Jill hands Pati all of her dirty brushes to wash live on the mic—this is not a drill!


We begin our chat by getting behind-the-scenes insights into the artistry behind Priyanka Chopra’s camp-themed, MET gala look, including the hidden, historical meaning behind beauty mark placement. Next, we dive right into the topic of the day, starting with what separates a good brush from the bad. In a podcast bonding moment, Pati and Jill discover they share the same ride-or-die makeup brush (psst… it’s great for both foundation and concealer).
